Great home cooking

I was in town for 2 weeks and ate there 4 times for dinner. Great meat+3 veggies (or substitute dessert for a veggie) or breakfast spot. Over the course of 2 weeks, our family ate the pot roast (just like dad makes), chicken n dressing (just like mom makes), and our favorite catfish dinner. Catfish... read more

If you like country cooking I would highly recommend this place they have also. Opened up another location. They have a great breakfast also. 1 location. On governors drive and one on south parkway.

We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast at Blue Plate. Jordan's exceptional attentiveness and friendliness made the experience that much more special! The pancakes were delicious and I loved the cheesy browns and country steak. The place is full of regulars. It was quite a treat for us who are just passing through Huntsville to find such a welcoming authentic spot. Keep... More

Basic down home restaurant that is always crowed with a line to get a table for both breakfast or lunch (have never been for dinner). Nothing fancy but comfort food with pretty good service. Food is out quick. We've never been disappointed. Although this review says for Business, lots of regular folk visit as well.

When I am on that side of town, this is my premium place for lunch. Daily Entree and 2 or 3 vegetables. This place is always fast, hot, and good home cooking. Best thing is generally, thow the place is full, I can get a place at the counter for 1. I will be glad when they open the second... More

I almost don't want to tell anyone else about this place, they're already as busy as can be whenever we want to go! Hungry for home? Want comfort food but not mass produced macaroni and cheese? Get down to the Blue Plate Café, order the daily special with your choice of awesome side dishes (most of which are unusually healthy)... More

I'm never disappointed any time I have breakfast at this place. The pancakes are fluffy and the omelets are awesome. A great place to have breakfast.

This place was a little out of the way from where we were staying. On the morning we started home to KY from Huntsville, it had snowed about 6 inches the previous day. While the roads were simply wet, most places were closed due to snow and we were hungry. I pulled up our trusty TripAdvisor app and found this... More

Probably the closest to down home cooking in a chain restaurant. The Blue Plate Special was great. Service was good and the location was easy to get in and out. Great for families!

They've got great meat & 3 veg choices for lunch and they are super fast. The service has to be super fast to keep up with the food flying out of the window though. I had to wait for refills and extra sauce for too long but the food came 5 minutes after we ordered. Better than sitting in a... More
